When in Rome, do as the Romans do--throw a coin into Trevi Fountain, have a cappuccino at an alfresco restaurant at Piazza Navona, or let loose on a shopping spree at Via Condotti. For an encompassing view of the Eternal City--its major landmarks and quaint side streets--climb the hill of Passeggiata di Gianicolo. If you want to capture the city's most iconic sites--like Colosseum or Basilica di San Pietro--on camera, make sure your list of things to do in Rome includes a photography tour with a professional photo guide.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
